Well rounded trip! Everything was organized properly. We travelers by high quality bus with A/C. Guide was bilingual and spoke in English and French. Each point od tour was fulfilled. Guide was helpful and told us some stories and facts to keep people engaged. I don't advise to take the lunch extension as you can be dropped instead by the bus at a place with several places around where you can eat what your want. There is one stop between Athens and Delphi to visit a bathroom (the same on way home). Instead of mobile app we were given small wireless receivers and earpiece. They were working well. Overall there was nothing to complain about.

We had an excellent time going to Delphi with Vicki. She gave us so much great information on Greek history, mythology, culture, and food. She also showed us the archaeological site of Delphi in great detail, so we came away with an appreciation of the significance of the site to Mediterranean and world history.

Thanks for coming to get us from our hotel when the general strike meant no taxi service was available. Everything was very enjoyable and Dimitra was an excellent guide, informative and charismatic. More time at the museum to browse would have been nice, but that's a small criticism.

This was a great tour. Our guide was knowledgeable. The museum was very crowded with tours so it was nice to have the guide to give the highlights but there definitely was not time to linger. The stops to and from we’re wonderful sights also.

Excellent trip - it was great to head out of the city to see and learn about somewhere so fascinating. Would recommend.
